arewolfe 13514@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Actually digging the tune you're working on is pretty crucial. Once you're working with a tune you enjoy, transcribe a classic version. Or just sit with a chart in front of you and play it over and over and over for a few days (or weeks). If you really dig the tune the repetition aspect won't be a problem and you'll internalize it.</p> <p>If you're working on a tune you don't particularly enjoy, employing some of the ideas mentioned above will be helpful. </p>

Pauli Poulsen 13509@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I think the key is just repetition. I like using the iRealbook. If I'm learning a tune I'll put set the app to repeat the tune a bunch of times and just play the melody, and play it another bunch of times improvising over the changes. </p> <p>And important part of learning a tune is listening to recordings. Knowing the tune by listening is so important, because it's easier to play anything if you can hear it in your head first. This way you'll also catch different nuances which may not be reflected in the lead sheet, such as intro/outros, band hits, etc. </p> <p>Lastly I would recommend try and learn the chord progression in relation to the key (so Dm7 - G7 - Cma7 would be IIm7 - V7 - Ima7), and then play the tune in all 12 keys going around in a cycle of 5ths. The iRealbook actually has a feature for this. Set it to cycles through the keys, and try to improv over it without looking at the changes on the screen. </p> <p>This last step will really solidify the changes in your memory. You will know them on a deep level. </p> <p>Hope some of this is useful to you. </p>

animitta 13508@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Hello,<br /> I had the fortune to partecipate to some masterclasses of Kurt, in Italy. I remember he suggested a way to memorize really well a tune.</p> <p>Let's take this "dummy" harmony as an example (every chord last for four beats):</p> <p>Dm7 | G7 | Cmaj 7 | Cmaj 7|</p> <p>On every chord you will play just the root and seven of the chord, for one beat, than fifth and thirth for another beat and than repeat for the other two beats (or you can mix the approach). </p> <p>So you will have something similar:</p> <p>Dm7 G7 Cmaj7 Cmaj7<br /> 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4<br /> D A D A |G D G D | C G C G |C G C G |<br /> C F C F |F B F B | B E B E |B E B E |</p> <p>You will have to adjust accordingly to the different chords (ex:Dm7b5 or Bb7b5) you can encounter in a tune.</p> <p>Make this in every place of the fingerboard, for a tune of your choice, also mixing the approach: you will never forget the tune and you will know it really well.</p> <p>Hope it is clear enough and that it could help.</p> <p>All the Best</p> <p>Riccardo </p>

JorgeRubiales 4354@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Well, I think that to be able to play a piece coherently, we must be informed about the context of the piece.</p> <p>I study classical music, and for example, many Bach pieces for lute don&#39;t have any expression marking. You have to know how baroque music is supposed to be played first, and then to figure out what the intent of the phrase is.</p> <p>Ultimately there&#39;s no right or wrong, but through experiencing the music of a period or author we will be able to make an informed decision and shape our personal taste. </p>

jazzbum 4351@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>To be clear, my interest in having the composer&#39;s chagnes is not for the sake of being able to play at jams. If I am going to a session I always bring my Real Book and read the notes and adapt as necessary. There&#39;d be no cohesion if we all played different changes.</p> <p>My interest is understanding intent, power, emotion of these songs. I feel like so many people have covered &quot;But Not For Me&quot; e.g. and it just sounds dry and emotionless. Part of re-discovering the power these songs can have is listening to masters cover them, but the other part for me is understanding the composers original idea. I feel like we&#39;ve somehow lost the rich drama in these songs as they have been played and played. Notice how the Real Book has no dynamic markings.....how often do you go to a pickup gig where the leader gives dynamic cues? </p> <p>I suppose my theory is that each time someone covers a songs it changes, and it really helps to understand how it has changed. To be able to hear the composer perform would be ultimate, as would an original recording. Just listen to the stark differnce between how Ornette plays his compositions to how Pat Metheny plays them. Its an amazing study in musical aesthetics. </p>

david6strings 4347@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>i&#39;ve heard about a diminished chord in just friends and if i remember well is just a II V in the real book. yeah jam sesions can put you in trouble if you play what the composer wrote. fake books seems to follow a quick understandable way for musicians </p>

jorgemg1984 4343@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Yes its true Jorge, its easier to arrange original versions than already arranged versions (and another advantage of having the original changes is to able to compare it to the changes jazz cats usually play and see how they arranged the song). </p> <p><a href="http://www.nypl.org/" rel="nofollow">http://www.nypl.org/</a> This is where you can get the original scores for most standards I think (it would be great if they posted them online) </p>

JorgeRubiales 4341@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Hey animitta, nice website!</p> <p>I believe that too Jorge, but I find it refreshing to be able to start from a simple tune and enrich it as I play it more and more. But if you start with an arrangement, it doesn&#39;t feel right to make changes, because it looks like &quot;that&#39;s how the song is&quot;, you know? </p>

JorgeRubiales 4328@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Well, if they&#39;re going to give us mistaken changes, they may very well give us the originals well written lol</p> <p>jazzbum, for the people out of USA who cannot access these music, could you ask if they&#39;re public domain? It would be great to have some kind of scan of some of this charts.</p> <p>By the way, I was checking a song today, and I realized a phrase on Sher&#39;s new real book index: choice standards (including lyrics and correct changes). Does this mean that they&#39;re the original changes, or are they &quot;double-checked&quot; for mistakes? lol</p> <p>EDIT: After a coffe and a shower, I&#39;ve read the thread again, and I don&#39;t even know if any of you are from NYC lol But seriously, it would be great to have access to those scores.</p> <p>Man, I need to stop posting too early in the morning or too late in the night.

jazzbum 4327@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Jorgemg - you have refined my point exactly. I am not so much concerned about the jazz changes per se, but the simplest version of the changes, so I can make my own arrangements of these tunes. It just seems frustrating to me that even playing out of the Real Book, we are often playing an interpretation that is someone else&#39;s. When a standard starts to sound stale to me if I do have one of those old piano/guitar sheets they always seem more open or interesting. I suppose that is because the simpler changes allow for me to come up with changes that sound new to me. They might end up being similar to Bill Evans changes but the point would be that I have discovered them for myself, thus making the tune sound fresh. I suppose I&#39;ll start searching for the original charts. </p>

jorgemg1984 4326@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Yeah its true Jorge, there are a lot of songs I would like to have the original score and since most standards are from the 40s they should be public domain. But I would like to say there is a difference between &quot;right changes&quot; and &quot;original changes&quot;-</p> <p>Most of the times the original changes are very basic and simple, &quot;All or Nothing at all&quot; is a good example, then the jazz players arranged the songs and those became the &quot;right changes&quot;. The problem with the real book is that this right changes are very often full of errors and are different from both the original changes and the changes played by jazz cats. Bernstein wanted the original scores to make his own arrangements instead of playing the changes jazz players usually play - that come from Miles or other players back in 40s or 50s. </p>

jorgemg1984 4323@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>yes, if everyone agrees on the changes play the tune instead of wondering it those are the right ones... and a lot of times people reharmonize on the spot and even the &quot;right changes&quot; have lot of variations - the thing about the real book is that sometimes is really wrong, like on the first four measures of &quot;Four&quot; (there are many more examples).</p> <p>The MD Quintet is a good source, Coltrane playing standards also, and Jim Hall and Paul Desmond is a 4 CD bible... The KJ Trio also a great source for good changes. </p>

jazznan 4322@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I know that most jazz musicians that I&#39;ve spoken to frown upon Real Books. One jazz musician told me to listen to the Miles Davis Quintet stuff for changes, that was a good source. It&#39;s kind of like reading fairy tales and re-interpretations, if you&#39;re seriously interested in the fairy tale, you&#39;d go back to try and find the original source, instead of someone else&#39;s retelling.</p> <p>One basic point that I think gets lost in this discussion is that the point is to make music. So if the changes sound good and everyones playing the same ones, who cares what they are, just make music. I remember hearing an interview with Gary Peacock and Jack D., where they said that Keith would come to the show and they would sometimes talk about what they were going to play if he wanted to change a chord in a certain standard tune. </p> <p>I think you could play a tune for a while and then decide, I&#39;d like to change the quality of this chord or add something here that you&#39;re hearing, some descending bass movement or something, it&#39;s all good, right? </p>

jorgemg1984 4320@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I can only say Bernstein hates Real Books and I know he used to go to New York Public Library to get the original sheet music to the songs. A lot of changes are sort of known between musicians - I usually take them from guys like Bernstein or Kurt, because I know they play &quot;the right changes&quot;. Usually they are wrong at the Real Books - just compare &quot;All or Nothing All&quot; to Kurts version... Good standard records are always the best source. </p>

jazzbum 4319@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I have been mulling this topic over for quite a while and reading the topic about jazz books I thought it might be something worth discussing. I have talked to a lot of players who have legitimate problems with the Sher Real Books and the Ol&#39; 5th edition. Most of them complain that many ii chords are added where they weren&#39;t necessarily originally intended and that a lot of the standard chord changes are actually Bill Evans&#39; changes that he used. This has often made me wonder how guys like Peter Bernstein, Bill Charlap, really anyone who interprets a lot of Standards, unearth the core changes of these tunes. It seems really hard to get the essential changes when the Real Books are already slight re-interpretations. Further, it is hard to re-interpret someone else&#39;s interpretation. </p> <p>I used to sit at the piano and play When You Wish Upon a Star, using one of those really old sheets from when the song was first released. I am not a very good pianist so I would play really basic triads under the melody. It seemed to really open a lot of doors for me, not only was I hearing the essence of the tune, but I could hear all the possiblilities of the tune itself. Anyone have an approach to finding that essence of a Standard? Or do you guys know of any books that really pare down tunes to their basic elements? I&#39;d also love any ideas on how to interpret these charts that have all kinds of added chords. </p>
